Marshfield Clinic CEO to exit after Essentia Health merger

Susan Turney, MD, the first CEO of Marshfield (Wis.) Clinic Health System, will step down in September 2023 after nine years in the role. 

Dr. Turney will continue to guide the health system through its proposed merger with Duluth, Minn.-based Essentia Health, according to a Dec.12 news release shared with Becker's. The two health systems announced their intent to join in October, and expect to reach a definitive agreement in the "coming months," the release said. 

"My time as CEO here has been the greatest professional experience of my life, and I am deeply proud of what we have achieved together," Dr. Turney said in the release. "[Over the past decade] our workforce has more than doubled, we've brought hospital care to nearly a dozen communities, we've expanded into Michigan and battled through a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic."
